“Home of the North Carolina Tar Heels”

Carolina basketball plays its home games at the Smith Center, one of the most recognized athletic venues in America. The Smith Center became the home of the Tar Heels in 1986 and has since become a cherished traditional symbol of Carolina basketball. The first game in the Smith Center featured No. 1 Carolina defeating No. 3 Duke, 95-92, in a battle of unbeaten teams on Jan. 18, 1986. The first Tar Heel basket was scored by Carolina center Warren Martin off a pass from Kenny Smith. As of 2013, the Tar Heels have a 129-16 record (.890) in the Smith Center in Roy Williams’ nine years as head coach. Dean Smith led the Tar Heels to a 133-17 record (.887) in the building that bears his name.
